A CREMATORIUM for pets will be opening in Barnsley on November 8.

Cannon Hall will be opening the crematorium at the side of their walled gardens, providing individual cremations for pets in a secluded area of the park, which is hidden away from public view.

Coun Roy Miller will officially open the pet crematorium at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday November 8.

The pet crematorium at Cannon Hall will ensure pets are carefully cremated on their own, and their ashes prepared personally by staff in accordance with their owners’ wishes.

People can choose to scatter their pet's ashes or place a small memorial plaque in a special woodland area of the park. A farewell room has also been built where owners can go to discuss their requirements or say their last goodbye.

If you would like more information about the service, or to make advance arrangements for your beloved pet, please contact petcrematorium@barnsley.gov.uk or call 01226 206053.
